The kiddo claims that he doesn’t like pizza. Each time we have it for dinner I offer him a piece, and he turns away all snooty-like. Until we are actually sitting down at the table eating, and then he wants a piece. Which usually comes off of Hubs’ plate, because that’s the kind of stand-up guy he is.
But still, he claims to not like pizza. Even when we make it together and create funny faces out of the toppings, up until the minute he’s chewing on it, he claims that he doesn’t like it.
I’ll be reminding him of this when he’s 16 years old and only wants to eat pizza. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ll remind him that he doesn’t like pizza, and use that as a reason to refuse filling him with it each and every day. Unless he wants to make it for himself, then by all means, eat whatever you want.
Last weekend when I made a new recipe for the kiddo, I knew what to expect. He’d refuse it. Claim that he doesn’t like it. Repeat endlessly that he won’t like it. And then after he’s helped me mix the ingredients together, he’d eat it. Not just a nibble here and there to make me happy. He’s eat one. And then another. Until his guts were exploding.
With pizza. Waffle pizza to be exact. Combining two of our families favorites foods, even if the kiddo claims otherwise.
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1-3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup chopped turkey pepperoni
- 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- Heat a waffle iron to medium-high.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs until fluffy. Stir in the flour, milk, oil, sugar, baking powered and sea salt until smooth. Stir in the chopped pepperoni and shredded cheese.
- Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray. Pour about 1/2 cup of the batter onto the hot waffle iron. Close lid and bake for approximately 5 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Repeat until all of the batter is used up. Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray each time.
- Serve with your favorite pizza sauce.
